The Bernde people live in a dry, mountainous region of south central Chad, primarily in the town of Morom. The Bernde are subsistence farmers living on land subject to droughts. When the rains are plentiful, the Bernde thrive. When the rains don't come, they face starvation. The Bernde have no modern amenities like clean, running water or electricity.
The Bernde have been adherents of Sunni Islam for centuries. The Bernde's brand of Islam is mixed with folk religion and animism. There are churches in some of the surrounding communities, but none in their villages.
The Bernde need access to a nearby source of clean water. Solar panels can help power cell phone and appliances. Most Bernde villages lack a school for their children. Teams of workers can bring the benefits of modern medicine to the Bernde.
"But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children," Psalm 103:17
Pray that this people group will understand that they can enjoy the eternal love of the Lord.
We know of no followers of Christ among the Bernde people. Pray for many to embrace the only Savior. Ask the Lord to send workers to serve among the Bernde. Pray that Bernde parents would be able to provide for their children. Pray that the Bible and Christian resources would be translated into the Morom language. Pray for a movement to Christ among the Bernde people.
